Fürenalp

Fürenalp

Mountain pass hike on historic trails from the Reuss Valley in Uri over the Surenen Pass to Engelberg. This route was chosen in earlier times to avoid the (costly) ferry rides on Lake Lucerne. To shorten the journey, there are small mountain trains. Several mountain houses, including those on the Brüsti and Fürenalp offer board and lodging en route.

The Surenen Pass is easier to hike from Engelberg to Attinghausenbecause of its gentler ascent. With the Fürenalp or Äbnet cableway youwill have reached x an altitude of more than 1, 600 m already. From thePanorama restaurant Fürenalp you can hike into the valley and willnotice right away that the height drops at the beginning of the hike by200 meters. After less than three hours you will reach the pass.
There are several options for the descent in the direction of Reusstal:we recommend that you take the descent that leads across the"Geissrüggen" or "Grat" (ridge) to Brüsti. Shortly after the pass thetrail turns left. The well-maintained path then traverses an area ofstones and pebbles and subsequently leads you during this very pleasantpanoramic hike - with view of the entire Urner Lake up to Brunnen - tothe Brüsti cableway. It whisks you down into the valley ofAttinghausen, where you can take a bus to Altdorf (alternatively, youcan walk to the Altdorf Train Station).
